That's terrible. They're some aggressive birds. I was walking down the steps and a hawk flew down about twenty yards awAy from me and tried to get my leg horn. Luckily my roo was right there and fought it off until I got there. No injuries. Just feathers missing thank God. Had I not been there, I feel like she'd be gone. It was a little smaller than my roo. Glad I kelp him now. He's a friendly roo but he tries to protect his girls.
Oh wow, lucky your roo was there. My roo is a silkie, he is pretty tough and always protects the girls. If one of the hens wonders off away from the flock when he thinks there is danger he will run over and chase her back into the group. Lol!
